Your feet do a lot for you – it’s worth looking after them, so that you can keep makin tracks throughout your life!
How a Podiatrist Can Help
If your feet are causing you problems, seeing a podiatrist is a good idea. A podiatrist is a highly trained and registered health professional, specialising in the treatment of feet and lower limb issues. Think of a podiatrist as being like a foot doctor!
From our Redlands podiatry clinic, we can help with the foot care issues that tend to arise as we grow older, such as:
- diabetes foot care;
- osteo and rheumatoid arthritis;
- in grown toenails;
- cracked heels;
- corns, calluses and bunions;
- plantar fasciitis;
- peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
- orthotics and a professional shoe fitting service.
You don’t need a referral to see a podiatrist, however if you are having your costs covered by Workcover, the Department of Veteran affairs or through the Chronic Disease Management Program (formerly known as the Enhanced Primary Care Program) you will need a referral from your GP.
